Value of a Big Pike

6 posts in this topic

Its going to be interesting to see how much a 36 inch pike is worth in relationship to how much we spend on stocking them..no less the cost of replacing a 40 incher.

Its a statement and an working assessment project of mine that the value of a 36+ inch Pike is of great importance to all of us that buy a license, as soon as we get it all together we'll get it out.

For me, every one over 2 foot is priceless and goes back in the water alive to be caught another day.

Well since pike stocking is about last on the DNR agenda the $$$$ impact is very little in itself. The impact to the fishery is pretty significant though. Every lake needs big predators, be them cats, pike, or muskie. And who knows, hauling in a big pike might make some of those casual fisherman into more serious fisherman whom put more into the economy.

i never look at lures thinking "this is going to bag me a huge fish".... i just look at it and go "this should catch me some fish" and if it does... i buy more.. last year.. i think total i bought about a dozen of those Strike King Rocket Shad... they were an amazing lure.. caught me a lot of snakes and bass... i also probably buy around 2 dozen PMs a year at least.. i never look at the cost of my license/tackle/gear as a "now hopefully this pays for itself" i'm more worried about the actual performance of what i buy more than what its going to catch..
